i have been taking prednisalone (10mg / day) throughout my pregnancy and started one year ago as the effects of the methotrexate wore off.
All my scans (including extra growth scans) have been fine and i have had a 'normal' pregnancy. This wasn't mentioned until i met a consultant for the third time at 35 weeks who originally said i would need a canular (drip) but the only further information i have received is "It's just one injection so it's no big deal"
I want to know if the consultant is being over cautious and if this is a 'may need' situation rather than a 'will need' situation. What will happen if i don't have the injection, can i have it later, can a home birth midwife give me the injection etc?
I am trying to get hold of the consultant again but it's not so easy!!!!
